Freshly assembled in 2020, Sterling has brought together a team of incredible musicians to bring forth a fresh and exciting palette of original, dynamic soul/rock tunes: Cliff Blum (guitar), Scott Clement (bass), and David Ray (drums).
With a brand new album of original music that ranges from summertime feel-good jams, to full tilt guitar-hero ragers, this group has something for everyone....for the People!
"'TRUTH'" is an unabashed celebration of self. It’s an anthem about the freedom that comes from being who one truly is and what that uniqueness brings to the world,” Sterling said.
Sterling is a DC area-based guitarist and singer known for his psychedelic soul with a touch of blues rock. In addition to playing with his bands Nappy Riddem, The Ordinary Way and Future, he has shared the stage and toured extensively throughout the country with the likes of legends Blues Traveler, Junior Marvin (Bob Marley’s guitarist and co-songwriter), Derek Trucks Band, Bob Weir (Grateful Dead).
